Dr. Peter Kreeft: “Seeking and Responding to Truth”

The best way to absorb this is to put on headphones, hit play, and minimize the video. Not much to watch, but plenty to listen to while you work. It’s an hour and a half of good listening. Enjoy.

Peter J. Kreeft, Ph.D., spoke on “Seeking and Responding to Truth” in January 2010 as part of AQ’s annual St. Thomas Aquinas Week festivities. Kreeft is a professor of philosophy at Boston College and The King’s College, and is the author of over 55 books. source

For Augustine Truth is the distinction between good and evil. “My love is my gravity, my love is my weight, my love is my destiny.” All evil is disordered love, and all good is properly ordered love. But ordered by what? Truth… Aquinas said that the kindest deed you can do for your neighbor is to help them find the truth… Endure anything rather than betraying truth… Truth isn’t just an intellectual problem, it is primarily a moral problem.

– Various quotes from the above video by Dr. Kreeft
